Abstract
Background: Medical and engineering courses are two prominent streams of studies preferred by Indian students at the undergraduate level and both are known to be strenuous and rigorous.
Methods: The study was carried out among 19-21 yr old normal final year students of Engineering and Medical College. The participation was voluntary and willing students were requested to fill Fatigue Assessment Scale (FAS) questionnaire and a self designed questionnaire on inclusion of yoga as reliever of stress. Conclusion: This study indicates that medical students incur more mental fatigue than the engineering students and that the students of both stream indicated that Yoga would be an ideal reliever of stress and fatigue. These observations if implemented by academic institutions could be of possible help in amelioration of the stress in students of these streams of studies
